On Friday, March 23rd, the world said goodbye to a wonderful woman - Eleanor (Ellie) Ambrose. Ellie and Norman Ambrose would have celebrated 63 years of marriage on Sunday March 25th; an incredible accomplishment rarely seen in today’s society. While I could talk for hours about her impact as my grandmother, another thought came to mind - for over 40 years she worked with tireless devotion and wonderful energy to support the family business through three generations.
Rarely do the people behind the scenes get recognized for their accomplishments, support, and love. However, in many cases, these individuals are the true heroes. I’ve seen it in my grandparents’ relationship, my parents’ relationship, and I am now living it personally with the wholehearted, unconditional love and support that my wife provides every single day.
